pronounce Juneau? I've been watching Jeff Corwin's Into Alaska these past few weeks, (it has been a great show very educational.) Anyway He pronounced it: Jew no.
I have always thought it was pronounced:
Jah new. Which way is correct or does it matter?

It is pronounced as Jeff Corwin says it. The emphasis is on the first syllable....JOOOOno.

I agree that Jeff's new Alaska show is terrific. Joo no is how I have always pronounced it. Never heard it pronounced any other way come to think of it.

Thanks ya'll. I guess I've never thought about it till I watched Jeff's show and got to wondering about it. lou
